A North Carolina woman has been charged with driving her vehicle into a yard where three Black teens were playing basketball.

via NYDN:

One of the boys was injured and received treatment at the hospital for minor injuries.

A news release from the sheriff’s office says that 35-year-old Daina Renee Forrest was driving around Greenville — a city of about 90,000 located 80 miles east of Raleigh — and threatening the teens with a knife and cursing at them. The news release said that Forrest “intentionally veered her car off the roadway and partially into the yard to strike the children.”

When deputies searched the car, they discovered marijuana, crack cocaine, and a knife.

Pitt County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Lee Darnell said that the damage to the front of Forrest’s car was consistent with hitting a person.

Forrest is being held by the sheriff’s office and has been charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and a felony count of cocaine possession.

Darnell said he does not believe race was a factor.

“I don’t believe it was a race hate crime, no.”

We’re willing to bet that race was DEFINITELY a factor.
